Red Pepper Hummus

– Red Pepper Hummus –

This red pepper hummus  is based on a recipe from Nigella Lawson’s cookbook Nigella Express. It’s a simple dip that packs a flavour punch and can be made from ingredients that you have stashed in the cupboard and fridge. What’s even better is that it can be used as a side sauce for plain meats, served dolloped on crostini or even as a topping for nacho’s.
